Personalized Autograph Pillowcases.

I really like having fun little keepsakes from parties and special occasions.  For my oldest daughter's First Communion this past Spring, I made this Guest Book Table Runner for all our guests to sign for her.  She loved it and I liked tucking it away as a special memento.

For my girls' recent birthdays, I wanted to do a similar keepsake.  I ended up making them some personalized autograph pillow cases.  They were inexpensive (a 2-pack of pillowcases was just $10), easy to make (I made both of them in under an hour the morning of the party!), their little friends loved signing them at the party and my girls love falling asleep on pillows signed by some of their favorite people.

Here's what you'll need:

Here's what to do:  (Unfortunately, I don't have pictures of every step.  I tend to procrastinate and was doing this the morning of their party.   It's super easy, though!)

1.  Find a font and/or stencil you like on the computer, then enlarge it to the size you want.  

2.  Trace your letters onto the paper-y side of the Heat'n Bond.  You'll want to make sure you trace the letters backwards so the right side will be facing up when you iron it on the fabric.

Notice how the letters are backwards?
 3.  Iron your Heat'n Bond, paper side up to the wrong side of your fabric. (medium heat, no steam)

4.   Cut out your letters and/or shapes.  You'll notice that it's really easy to cut the letters out because of the paper backing from the Heat'n Bond.

5.  Peel off the paper backing from your letters, position them on your pillowcase and iron in place (medium heat, no steam)

6.  Allow your friends to use the fabric markers to sign your new personalized pillowcase!

The signatures are a little tough to see in the picture, but look super cute in real life!


  1. I love that Heat 'N Bond stuff too ... a total lifesaver for people like me who love fabric crafts but have limited sewing abilities. Your pillowcase turned out awesome!

  2. This would have been perfect for my 5 yr old PJ palooza party last week- I just love it do much though that I took the idea and we are doing it on canvas tote bags instead and instead of autographs I am asking them to each write the names of their fav books all over so we can use them as library book bags! thx for your wonderful ideas and inspiration
